Eighteenth Entry

We're just back from our rescue mission to the galaxies known in your parts as Nuvens de Magalhaes, previously untraveled by Otonyan kind. Thankfully, we were successful in retrieving dear Hfsh from the clutches of evil kidnappers. We do not yet have a complete understanding of their motive, but apparently Hfsh was not a lone victim. We found a number of other of other ooyots imprisoned in glass jugs. Some we found dismembered and scattered about over a countertop. It appeared that the kidnappers had some interest in ooyotian telepathic technology, as the communication devices of our poor planetfellows had been extracted and were nowhere to be found among their grisly remains. We were beset with grief that anyone would go so far as to destroy us. However, we were also overjoyed to find Hfsh and other abducted ooyots alive! Still, something is lurking out there. I suspect this won't be the last of it.

We were tipped off to Hfsh's location by signals that we traced in a direction beyond the reaches of our galaxy. Hfsh had tried to communicate with us, but due to the distance, only evidence of a message, but not its contents, made it through. While we had no map of the area since neither of the Nuvens has been previously explored, as soon as we merged into Nuvem 1 in the direction of the signal, we came across a small, visibly inhabited planet, from which we detected Hfsh's signal emanating with increasing intensity, despite a constant background of high-pitched vibration that sometimes obscured it.

When we arrived on terra firma, we parasited onto a much larger pod that appeared to have also just landed. The alien pod carried us down to an inner chamber, hidden beneath the surface of the planet. We had the fortune of not meeting any of Hfsh's captors or their kind. Thanks perhaps to our size, we were able to complete the mission undetected. However, it is rather strange -- the chambers in which we found the glass jugs and ooyot remains appeared quite ordinary based on our experience on Earth and in other parts of the universe, yet we saw no inhabitants on that planet, anywhere.

We are just grateful that we all returned intact. We now face the difficult task of deciding what to do, now that we are already well underway in our nesting with Rsadssa and now Hfsh's is returned to us. While sixsomes are not unheard of, five can anticipate that a sixsome, especially where one has not equally partaken in the act of parenting, is wrought with subtle complexities and conflicts. We shall keep you posted about the status of our family.

Comments:
I wonder though, given that your technology will be very dependent on your species' brain, could another species really get much out of it?

Humans, for example, would surely be unable to deal with the communication system you describe. Some of us already have voices in our heads, and can't deal with them!
 
Hello Earthling! Thank you for visiting my bdiary.

Since nothing is yet known about the species of Hfsh's captors, alas, we can only speculate as to motive at this point. However, as with your species, the ooyots have several cousin species who could conceivably copy and utilize our genetic engineering technologies with slight modifications. But who knows who the captors are and hat their intentions might be? Hopefully we will learn soon.

Happy listening!
